Research shows that poor connections to the Internet cost workers a lot. While the amount of time teams spend waiting on the slow Internet can seem tiny, over time, it adds up significantly.

Fremont, CA: A fiber-optic Internet installation will give company IT pros and landlords various advantages. One may be wondering whether the advantages outweigh the expense or drawbacks because of the relative novelty of this technology. While fiber-optic Internet access is a much newer technology than copper cable broadband Internet, several companies have found substantially higher returns on their fibre investment.

Speed

With options available ranging from 5 Mbps to 100 Gbps, the fiber-optic Internet is several times quicker than even the highest-speed copper Internet connections. An organisation does not notice the slowing down of the Internet during times of high demand for Internet connectivity.

Research shows that poor connections to the Internet cost workers a lot. While the amount of time teams spend waiting on the slow Internet can seem tiny, over time, it adds up significantly. Productivity can never be inhibited by Internet access. It should be an instrument that encourages the ability of the workers to function productively.

Cloud Access

The cloud is an important business tool for software, hosting, and more, from client relationship management (CRM) tools to data storage. The cloud is now used in some way by 96 percent of organisations. Fiber Internet speed and bandwidth capabilities mean quicker access to your cloud-saved data and applications.

Through your software-as-a-service (SaaS) tools and other channels, a company will benefit from less delays in accessing cloud-hosted information, which means sales and customer service representatives would no longer face delays in connecting with prospects or customers. The fiber-optic Internet is becoming important as corporations move more and more services to the cloud.

Reliability

Fiber Internet networking, due to the fact that fibre is much better than copper, provides major reliability advantages over copper Internet connectivity. The fiber-optic Internet is not vulnerable to poor weather conditions, which can damage or interfere with the transmission of data by copper cabling. Fiber, until fibres are cut physically, is often immune to human or electrical interference.
